Sarah Jessica Parker and Harry Connick Jr. star in this oddly sunny attempt at black comedy (and yes, it stoops to Dick jokes.) Parker plays Colleen, a good girl with a bad boyfriend named Dick. This problem is solved when she kills him within the film's first few moments. The rest of the movie is filled with wackiness, some of which hits and some of which misses. The plot isn't a bad one, with bits of information cleverly revealed through flashbacks and at least one pretty good twist, and the terrific (and sadly underused) Teri Garr (One From the Heart) appears in a cameo that she could do standing on her head. Life Without Dick is best suited for Harry Connick Jr. fans, as he spends most of the movie being affably handsome, with the other characters repeatedly begging him to sing. This earnest little comedy probably won't ever find mass appeal, but its weirdness will doubtless find it a cult following somewhere. --Ali Davis

Product Description

Colleen (Sarah Jessica Parker) has had enough of her life with boyfriend Dick (Johnny Knoxville), so much so that she hires hitman Daniel (Harry Connick Jr) to get rid of him for her. But she then soon finds herself falling for Daniel, who confesses that his heart is not really in the murder business and that he'd much rather be a professional crooner. Colleen subsequently agrees to help manage Daniel's singing career, which leaves the two of them with one problem: what to do about Dick?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun movie 8 Feb 2002
By Sherri A - Published on
This movie was really well done. The cast was perfect and there were actually some laugh out loud scenes. Harry Connick plays a hit man that can't kill. He meets Sarah Jessica Parker, they fall in love, and she starts killing for him. Lots of cute twists and turns, and some sarcastic humor as well. For fans of these two actors, I definitely recommend this movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars Talk about middle of the road... 5 May 2002
By Miss Laura - Published on
This movie wasn't great...but it wasn't horrible either. The only reason I rented it was because I'm madly in love with Harry Connick Jr. To tell you the truth, he acted better in Hope Floats and Memphis Belle.
In this movie, he plays a hit man who, unfortunately, can't bring himself to kill anyone. The role didn't suit him at all. All he really did was stand around and look pretty...and sing. Sarah Jessica Parker plays his love interest, a nice girl who accidentally kills her loser boyfriend. She's a little off balance throughout the movie, though. Like she's been handed this role and she doesn't know what to do with it. And Johnny Knoxville...he was in the first half hour and that was it. Why in the world is his name on the cover along with Parker and Connick, Jr.? He's a minor character at best.
But still, the movie wasn't a total loss. There are some hilarious scenes that save the movie and make up for everything else. Rent it if you plan on wasting an afternoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Without Dick 24 Feb 2010
By TREND700 - Published on
By accident, Colleen Gibson shoots and kills her gold-digging cheating boyfriend, Dick, a private eye who happens to have a hitman on his tail. Danny the hitman works for his brother-in-law, a cheerful but nasty Irish mobster, hasn't actually killed anyone, and wants to be a singer. He falls for Colleen. she likes him, too. He can solve her problem Dick's body, she can solve his meeting the mobster's demands that he kill people like Dick. Danny has an ex-girlfriend, who might still hold the key to his heart, two cops are sniffing around for Dick, a junk yard owner gets a conscience, and a talent show is coming up. Bullets, music, and true love are set to collide. "Life Without Dick" is a wild love-story, murder mystery that has layers of interesting characters and plot twists. The casting is incredible. Sarah Jessica Parker is funny. Good comedy for a nice evening.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars - Fresh black comedy 18 Mar 2002
By Manny Hernandez - Published on
Director debut for Bix Skahill, "Life Without Dick" reminded me of "Death Becomes Her," that Robert Zemeckis movie with Bruce Willis and Meryl Streep. This one stars Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker and singer Harry Connick Jr. She plays the role of a nice girl who accidentally kills her boyfriend Dick, because she's been "informed" that he's cheating on her by a Tarot Card reader. He, in turn, is a hit-man with no future as such, because he can't pull the trigger on his victims. Twists of fate make them meet and get involved in a romance that will promise to be full of surprises and black humor.
Not the best black comedy I've seen, but not a bad "B" film either. Rent it for watching it on a Sunday afternoon if you got nothing better to do: you'll be sure to get a few laughs out of it.
